Product Description & Reviews
On three studio records and a double live, Paris Combo has sketched out its own unique world, establishing itself as one of the most piquant, intriguing groups in French song. Sung in French, Motifs is the groups 5th album. With a sound made up of equal parts bossa nova and classic chanson transported almost unchanged from the 1960s, plus American jazz, Argentinean Tango, bal musette and the Manouche swing made famous by Django Reinhardt, Paris Combo undeniably personifies that city's aesthetic. French music and film tend to share an elegant, humorless, surreal, coolly theatrical artificiality so ingrained that observed or remembered passion becomes more seductive than the real thing. Style-over-substance is merely a different reality, no less involving than daily life. The band's membership includes a guitarist from Madagascar, a keyboardist/trumpeter from Australia, a French drummer and a French-Algerian guitarist, each of whom contribute whimsical, cosmopolitan images from their own travels. Bandleader-singer Belle du Berry's lyrics are wry metaphors, in which estrangement, loss and desire are experienced in nightclubs under the light of pink lampshades and each carefully posed film-noir frame is wreathed in expensive perfume and cigarette smoke. --Christina Roden

Coralie Clément, the tri-lingual french pop singer (she records in French, English, and Italian), took a playful approach on her third album, Toystore. Backed by a montage of toy instruments (ukulele, pennywhistle, pocket comet, alto half-violin, slide-flute, Melodica, maracas, shaker, xylophone, baby Farfisa) Clément's breathy, enticing voice is appropriately and amusingly disconcerting when singing lyrics such as: 'That's the life, that's the life we lead.

A French band singing French-language versions of the Cuban salsa style may seem like something of a gimmick, but Fatal Mambo substantially pulls it off. The eight-piece group is without peer in achieving maximum punch with economical arrangements, and bandleader J.F. ''Oscar'' Hammel's drive helps keep the fun and experimentation in place. But a Gallic version of Mungo Jerry's ''In the Summertime'' feels like a throwaway compared to the generally top-notch material here, as does the reggae
